Please don’t gape in horror at my makeup-less face…oh, and please excuse the ratty hair. I could make a quip about a family of rats nesting in my hair, but it’s honestly the result of curling my hair the night before, spraying it with loads of hairspray, and then sleeping in it and waking up the next day. Looking like this.

Work appropriate but definitely still romantic, I think. Like/subscribe to me on YouTube if you’re interested — it’s my first-ever full-on makeup tutorial (don’t you want to see me without makeup?? it’s pretty bad!). I figured, if I’m going to go out of my comfort zone this week, I may as well

Also, by popular request, the tutorial will show you how to apply the Bobbi Brown (or any) gel eyeliner. With the quickest and easiest cat-eye you’ve ever seen!
